Cybex Aton Q Car Seat Review

When searching for a car seat, one can easily get overwhelmed with the amount of different styles, features, and prices that there are out there. I know I did. It took  while and a lot of research but I finally decided on this one. Let’s be honest, pretty much every car seat out there is safe for your baby but it’s still a good idea to know your preferences. I chose this one based on only a few that I had. Besides first deciding that I wanted an infant car seat (because they are usually lighter than convertible ones) I was looking for a seat that would  1. Be easy to install 2. Be light and 3. Fit in my small car. I found all of those things in the Cybex Aton Q and more! Here are just some of the great features that drew me to this one:

  • It has genius design. From the side impact bars to the almost fully reclined position for infants, this seat is both safe and stylish.
  • It has great colors. There are so many vibrant colors to choose from but not so many that you get overwhelmed.
  • It installs in seconds. It uses the LATCH system plus has the easiest tightening mechanism I have seen.
  • It’s pretty light. Without the base, it’s 10 pounds which is obviously not the lightest one out there but considering the base attachment pieces are made of steel, I think that’s pretty darn good.
  • It has great fabric. I know this is prob not the most important thing but I was really suprised at how soft the fabrics were and even the sunshade is a luxurious spandex-type material (all of which is removable for washing).
  • It looks good. This car seat is just really sleek-looking and doesn’t look frumpy, which of course, is a plus. Overall, a huge win Cybex!

Messy Hair Don't Care

It’s kind of been my state of mind in general lately. Not that I’ve completely let go of appearances, but I have definitely fallen into the mom trap of putting yourself very last. Days go by where I don’t brush my hair at all. There have just been so many other more important things on... Continue reading


“It gets easier.” That’s what we were told in the beginning, after bringing home Nicholas. That is what we keep hearing as sleep continues to be rough.

Six weeks! I feel like six weeks is a milestone marker because we are now halfway to three months!
